Holiday Model Train Display Free at Georgetown Public Library


Georgetown November 2023 – Once again, members of the Delaware Seaside Railroad Club (DSRC) will pull out their prize model trains and bring them to the Georgetown Public Library for all to see! The exhibit is free and runs from 10:00 am – 1:45 pm on Saturdays: November 25, December 2, December 9, and December 16. All are welcome, and you do not need to register.

“I am so excited to host our 12th annual DSRC Model Train Display! The kids and families absolutely love this program every year – in fact, last year we had over 500 people attend over the course of the month,” said Rachel Culver, Director.

Club spokesman, Dr. David A. Lawrence, announced that “the large free holiday train display consists of four operating train layouts this year.  The O gauge layout has a carnival/circus theme with 21 push buttons around the large layout of eleven dioramas.   The buttons are for the children to operate moving accessories with lights and sound.  The children enjoy all the action as they walk around the display.

The S gauge layout features several scratch built buildings depicting local beach town businesses and homes.

The Polar Express winter train layout depicts the popular film story of three children with their friends on an adventure to visit Santa Clause at the North Pole.

Thomas the Tank Engine layout train can be run by the children holding a hand controller.  In addition, they can blow the whistle and ring the bell in the engine.

The young children can play with the Brio wooden train on the floor layout table.”

The Delaware SeaSide Railroad Club consists of over 60 members. The Club House is located north of Selbyville on Route 113. Their website is and they encourage donations of old trains, as they are a 501 c 3 Non-Profit Corporation.

“Come enjoy the trains!  Bring your family, neighbors, and friends visiting the shore. It is a delight for all ages!” says Dr. Lawrence.
